The grapes were separated from the stems. Fermentation occurred naturally with indigenous yeasts in egg-shaped cement containers at around 24°C. The wine remained in contact with the skins for two months, then was pressed and returned to the egg-shaped containers. The unique shape of the containers keeps the liquid in constant motion, ensuring consistent temperature and keeping the lees suspended. This process results in a wine with enhanced character and fullness on the palate. The wine was aged for 12 months in the same container to preserve its pure, authentic character without any influence from other sources, such as oak from a different region.

This highly aromatic wine has intricate notes of thyme, oregano, spices, and a hint of earthiness enveloping the fresh black fruit. It has an edgy, explosive, vibrant palate with layers of minerality and a beautiful texture that extends to a long finish.

Winery

The seven to 10-year-old espalier-trained vines are grown in a high-altitude, drip-irrigated vineyard in Gualtallary. Gualtallary is located in one of Argentina's most outstanding vine-growing valleys: the Uco Valley and is situated at 1,350 metres above sea level. This is one of the highest vine-growing zones in the Province of Mendoza, sitting at the foot of the Tupungato volcano- one of the highest peaks in the Andes. The zone is characterized by its combination of altitude, alluvial soils, sunny days, low rainfall, and wide temperature ranges. The diurnal temperatures here oscillate between 35°C and 20°C, creating long, slow ripening periods, concentrating the flavours in the fruit. This combination of cool climate and very specific white chalky soil gives the wine great structure and delicious acidity.
